The Huddersfield skyline, including the iconic Emley Mast

The Masters Hike ran from 1969-2000. We are delighted to be bringing back a new updated event, capturing the spirit of the event that inspired it. Our approach to the new event is based on the following guiding principles:

  • Opportunity for Explorer Scouts and Scout Network members to undertake a hillwalking challenge
  • Recognise achievement in completion of the challenge and best performances
  • Encourage more Scouting activity in the outdoors
  • Provide opportunities for skill training and achievement of awards
  • To promote Huddersfield Scouting
  • To encourage the four Huddersfield Districts to work together
